Reading the role of Andrea in Michael Mejias's WAITING FOR LUCY
a benefit for The Dramatic Question Theatre's 2016-17 season
James is the shy kid at Home Town High, but that doesn't stop him from pining after Lucy, the captain of the school's cheerleading squad. When Lucy agrees to let him walk her home one day, James is over the moon. There's just one small catch: he has to wait for her cheerleading practice to end. Piece of cake...right? That is until the rumor mill revs up and James finds himself in a web of absurd love triangles. In high school, nothing is simple for long.

Emily has joined the cast of Cyndi Williams' A Name For A Ghost To Mutter as Lala
From the rich complexities of the Southern Gothic, A Name for a Ghost to Mutter celebrates four generations of amazing, powerful, and audacious women. The play explores how we inherit stories, sometimes without our choosing, and through that understanding come to acknowledge, cherish, and perhaps even forgive those who came before us. Forgiveness, mercy, ownership, acceptance, solidarity, and even discovering that the most imposing old woman in the world was once a little girl as well.
Produced by Theatre East at Urban Stages

Emily is appearing as Jean in the East Coast Premiere of Meg Miroshnik's
The Tall Girls currently playing at Luna Stage.
Directed by Luna Stage founder Jane Mandel.
The tiny hamlet of Poor Prairie doesn't see a lot of folks coming into town - least of all men - so when one gets off the train, everybody talks, especially since he has the only inflated basketball in town. Set in the historic 1930s Dust Bowl in the rural Midwest, The Tall Girls explores class, gender, and the history of women in sports, and asks just who can afford the luxury of play.
This spring Emily will be creating the role of 16 year old Mary Claire in the WORLD PREMIERE of Tammy Ryan's new play TAR BEACH, directed by Luna Stage Artistic Director Cheryl Katz.
It is July 1977. Son of Sam is on the loose and New York City is in the midst of a brutal heat wave. Sixteen year old Mary Claire and her best friend Mary Francis start that day sunning themselves on the roof of an Ozone Park row house. Younger sister Reenie is searching for her lost Greek Mythology class project, while their parents are consumed by the battles of their troubled marriage. The boy crazy Marys hatch a plan to stay out all night, but an overstressed electrical grid leads to a city-wide blackout and a sudden loss of innocence.
